Gear Shift Floor Plan Cover

I would like to order this Gear Shift Cover

Will this work with my setup? I currently have a ton of heat blowing in through this area.

Story: The part was well deteriorated when I first got the jeep. Jeep had 4" lift with T Case drop installed. No SYE. Had reverse gear issue so i removed some more of the already degraded part. Since then I have installed an SYE, raised the T Case back to where it belongs, installed a body lift and MML. So My question is will this part fit and will I be able to shift appropriately with out having to cut into this new part?

Alternatively, you can use this: https://www.pepboys.com/product/details/9097443/00031

I installed one of these. It attaches to the part you linked. Of course, you will need to do some drilling, as well as trimming (you lose the post that the console bolts to, not an issue for me as I removed the center console). Also, a bit of silicone sealer is necessary. You just remove the top part of the shift lever, slide this over the bottom shaft, put it in neutral, and screw it down where it settles.

I would tend to think it would still work. I have a BL/MML and I just moved my console back a little bit and reattached it with new holes. The replacement pan is pretty expensive for what it is, in my opinion, and I have not replaced mine yet, even though it has some rips in the rubber flex boot. I made a small metal extension from the plastic post you mentioned and used a sheet metal screw in that console mounting hole to the extension.

Understandable. They have smaller ones that may work better.

I agree but the heat coming through the shifter is getting to be annoying and might be worth the cost. Most of my boot is gone, so the whole is rather large.

Maybe you can find a rubber boot to attach to the plastic pan. After reading JEK3's response, I may look for a generic boot that will fit, and not interfere with the post.

If you can bring the pan into the store, or convince the staff to let you bring a couple boots out to hold them up to the pan, that would probably help.
